A funny thing happened to me today. on the way to consciousness. I dreamt that I knew the answer to the eternal question – “Which came first, the eggplant or the egg?”The last few days have been packed with food, wine, sun and pleasure but they have come with a price. The price has been tiredness resulting in my passing a great deal of time in the realm of Morpheus, not finding the time (or will) to post on my blog and not looking after the pool which, in a fit of pique, has gone green. It looks like “la rentrée” has arrived – in my case a rentrée to reality. During this semi comatose period I haven’t been cooking for photography, instead I have been taking pictures of the fabulous food prepared by Mary Cadogan for a feature to be published, about her marvellous cookery school, in “France Magazine”. Today, I hope to continue in the time honoured fashion of cooking and snapping. We have an eminent blogger, http://talesofambrosia.com , coming to do a food photography course in a couple of days, so I need to return to full digital and culinary consciousness. It would be nice if our delinquent swimming pool had a similar sense of duty.

What a fabulously quirky photo! Love it 🙂 Hope you and “Ambrosiana” have fun…I´m sure it will be a great few days.
Ah, so that’s why they’re called eggplants! I’ve always preferred the dark-skinned ones so have never thought of this connection. I hope your pool behaves itself for your visitor from Rome….lucky Tales of Ambrosia, and she takes such lovely food photos already!
Another of Life’s mysteries solved! I cannot wait to read your report, as well as Ambrosiana’s, from the forthcoming meeting of the minds. It sounds like a wonderful time for everyone.
Shock it! The pool, that is. Thanks for reminding me to look out for those white eggplants. Too bad, I’m making a dish with eggplants today but I’ve just purchased the purple kind in the market. Next time.
Nice Photo !
Thanks for the mention! I am honored and I am looking forward to meet you!! See you soon!!!
I have a feeling you could figure out how to achieve world peace in your sleep. Love the picture.
I hope you got to enjoy some of Mary’s fabulous food after your hard work. When Ambrosiana arrives for lessons, it should be a teaching experience enjoyed by all. One thing is for sure…I know good food and great photos will be involved.
that little egg looks so sweet – like a little pixie in a cup. Now go clean your pool!
You are so clever! c
Ah if that eternal question could be reasonably answered…
I took a trip to Fambrosia and it sure was worth it… found gold when I come to site, love it when the words and recipes are both good, keep leading….RaeDi

Wow, in my mind the life of a professional food photographer sounds incredibly glamourous. I hope it is in yours as well. Excellent as usual.
